Test match - Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Meeting after March 2013 at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, standing front of Sri Langka today's Bangladesh is a more matured country because of some facts. Certainly looks Bangladesh has a balanced bowling and batting side and their recent team performance which evidence that more efficiency have to make a good contest. Why this is? This is because of in response of Sri Langka's 570/4dec runs Bangladesh did 638 runs later year. Near the day Bangladesh beat New Zealand ferociously in international matches and made a ruthless ending. Moreover for Bangladesh this test series isn't so fair enough because of unwillingness in world cricket 3 most powerful rich cricket boards India-Australia-England tussled wants of 8 test playing nations theory. If really that would be this may be the last contest for Bangladesh in any international test series. Standing in ranking number 9 country Bangladesh is going to down for the contest in Mirpur on today's morning against Sri Lanka. ...
IPL 7: Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings eye full retentions in auction Press Trust of India | 09-Jan-2014 17:32 PM New Delhi: Defending champions Mumbai Indians and the formidable Chennai Super Kings are the two franchises which are set to retain all five players when the teams submit their lists on Friday for the upcoming seventh edition of Indian Premier League. MI and CSK are the two teams that have the biggest fan base all over India and have had a core set of players that has remained pretty much the same over the years. As far as BCCI president N Srinivasan's franchise is concerned, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be retained along with Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin and Suresh Raina - all India regulars. The choice of foreign player will be between West Indies' Dwayne Bravo and South Africa's Faf du Plessis. Dhoni's fascination for seam-bowling allrounders is widely documented and Bravo certainly will hold an edge over his South African rival, who has also caught the imagination with ...

Shrill outsiders not letting Lanka enjoy peace dividend: Swapan Dasgupta - Among the enduring delights of a visit to England is the slap-up breakfast they serve at my Club. Unfortunately, the occasion was soured last Friday morning on reading the front page of a ‘quality’ newspaper that insists on thrusting its puerile radicalism down the throats of its readers. The offending piece was all about Prime Minister David Cameron’s all-too-brief visit to Kolkata and his subsequent journey to Colombo for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM). Referring to Cameron’s gushing tributes to Sachin Tendulkar playing his final Test in Mumbai, the reporters went on to suggest that such praise for Murali Muralitharan wouldn’t have been in order in Sri Lanka: after all, the ace leg spinner was Tamil. Such an astonishing assertion had me silently fulminating. Having watched Muralitharan cheered enthusiastically in the Premadasa Stadium at the height of the civil war, when anywhere north of Vavuniya ...

The Blue Label T20 squad will be tasked with turning around the Proteas' disappointing tour of Sri Lanka when the first of three T20 Internationals takes place at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Friday evening. Captain, Faf du Plessis, says the squad is dejected after the ODI series loss, but will need to look ahead and focus all of their energies into the T20 campaign.   "We have some new faces which is great," du Plessis said of Imran Tahir, David Wiese, Wayne Parnell and Henry Davids. " They bring some fresh energy which helps, especially after such a disappointing performance in the ODI series.   "We were outplayed by Sri Lanka in the ODIs so we are going to have to dig deep, that is going to be important. We have a lot of pride in our team, we don't want to go down in this series, we want to compete and win it."    Du Plessis is excited to have the attacking leg-spin option of Tahir, who makes his debut in the T20 International squad. The Proteas are hoping he will have the same effect a ...

-Jayasuriya's factor! he's the Master!- Sanath Jayasuriya did top-score in the highest Test total (340 out of 952 for 6 dec against India at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo in 1997-98), the highest in ODIs (157 out of 443 for 9 against Netherlands at Amstelveen in 2006) and Twenty20 internationals (88 out of 260 for 6 against Kenya at Johannesburg in 2007-08). The only other player to play in all three of those games was Mahela Jayawardene (the first one was his Test debut). Of others who might have played in all three, Chaminda Vaas did not play in the ODI record, and Muttiah Muralitharan missed both the ODI and Twenty20 games. And yes, it's obviously unique - Sri Lanka have held the Test record all the time Twenty20 internationals have been played, so no one else has had a chance for a look-in! Share!
September 9, 1994. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo. Sachin had not scored a century in the last 79 ODIs. The country grew restless. But then, the master answered to all the criticism and questions with one superb knock- 110 runs playing against Australia. One of the most significant and cherished centuries in the books of Sachin fanatics.

Second and third ODIs moved to Pallekele New Zealand Cricket (NZC) today confirmed that the second and third One Day Internationals of the Sri Lankan tour will now be played in Pallekele due to R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo being waterlogged. The BLACKCAPS travelled to Colombo this morning and will now return to Kandy tomorrow ahead of the relocated second ODI at Pallekele International Stadium. BLACKCAPS Team Manager, Mike Sandle, said: “Colombo has had a period of extremely wet weather, which has forced Sri Lankan Cricket to move the matches to Pallekele. “A lake close to the Premadasa has risen significantly, causing the water table so high that it is affecting the ground’s ability to drain. “I understand it is currently fine in Pallekele and we are hoping the weather is kind to us so we can get some cricket underway.” The second and third ODIs in the five-match series will be played on November 4 (LIVE - SKY Sport 1 from 9.40pm) and 6 (LIVE _ SKY Sport 3 from 9.40pm) as per the schedule.
An excellent article from The Island paper Chokers is a term thats commonly associated with South African cricket given the way they have messed things up in several big cricket events. But what Sri Lanka have done better than South Africa is to reach the finals of four big tournaments and stumble on all four occasions. Hence, they are the new chokers of world cricket. Sunday’s 36-run loss to West Indies was a bitter pill to swallow to the packed house of 35,000 spectators at R. Premadasa Stadium, who had seen time and again the team messing it up in the final game. Sri Lanka’s pervious three defeats include losses in the 2007 and 2011 World Cup finals and defeat in the 2009 World T-20. A confident Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene prior to the game felt that the three previous finals being played away from home and this one taking place in familiar conditions in front of our own spectators could make a difference. But it didn’t. To start with, Sri Lanka made several tactical blunders. Leaving o ...

On a crumbling, turning, brute of a pitch by Twenty20 standards, Mahela Jayawardene responded with a T20-size classic. His 42 off 36, as delightful as it was delicate, proved to be the difference between the two sides in a tight semi-final. It was a bitterly disappointing night for his opposite number: Mohammad Hafeez outmanoeuvred a rampant Kumar Sangakkara in a crucial moment in the first innings, he came back from a horribly slow start to his own innings, but fell on 42 with some way to go for Pakistan. It was Sangakkara who returned the favour with a superb stumping off a grubber to send Hafeez back with 48 to defend in 35 balls. Hafeez, who had just opened up with an extra-cover drive, a reverse-swept four and a punch through covers, was this close to making this his own night, but it was to be Sri Lanka's, who won their first Twenty20 international at R Premadasa Stadium, in the process successfully adjusting to a third venue in this tournament, the most for any team. The powdery surface began to ex ...
Spinners likely to rule in SL-Pakistan semi-final Associated Press | 03-Oct 05:23 AM Colombo: Who best can break the webof spin will determine the winner between host Sri Lanka and 2009 champion Pakistan in a World Twenty20 semi-final at the R Premadasa Stadium on Thursday. Ajantha Mendis and teenage sensation Akila Dananjaya lead Sri Lanka's hopes when they appear in the capital, Colombo, for the first timein the tournament. Pakistan will be relying heavily on mystery spinner Saeed Ajmal and slow left-armer Raza Hasan to counter the formidableSri Lanka batsmen. Sri Lanka knocked out defending champion England to reach the semi-finals, and for a chance to avenge its 2009 final defeat. Pakistanis appearing in a record fourth successive semi-final having edged out archrival and 2007 champion India on a better net run-rate. Sri Lanka last played a Twenty20 in Colombo three years ago. It played its group matches in Hambantota and Super Eights games in Pallekele for four wins and a loss. We don't have to cast ...
Unpredictable Pak vs consistent Lanka Thu, Oct 4, 2012 09:53 IST Calcutta/Colombo: If India vs Pakistan was huge, then there is no gain saying how big an occasion this is going to be. It’s the semi-final of the World T20, with the champions of the 2009edition up against the host nation, which should relish the conditions at the R Premadasa Stadium a lot more than they did those in Pallekele.Thursday’s clash against Pakistan will be Sri Lanka’s firstmatch at the Premadasa, a bastion of sorts for the home team. Yes, Pakistan will have a slight advantage simply because they have played three matches in this competition at the same venue, but quite obviously, no team is as literally at home at the Premadasa as Sri Lanka.Not too much, therefore, should be read into Pakistan having had a first-hand feel of the conditions in a competitive environment, though Sri Lanka will feel slightly hard done by that they had to wait until the knockout stages to make their first appearance at the national capital.ALSO ...
A hard-fought triumph was lost amidst the heavy hearts of the Indian cricketers and their ardent fans. A victory by the narrowest of margins — one run — was secured, but the larger goal was missed as India defeated South Africa, yet crashed out of the ICC World Twenty20. Prior to the Super Eights Group II match at the R. Premadasa Stadium here on Tuesday, India’s net run-rate (-0.452) was far below leader Australia (+0.464) and second-placed Pakistan (+0.273). To surpass that gap, India had to defeat South Africa by a margin of 31 runs or more after scoring 152 for six. The Proteas replied with 151 in 19.5 overs and accompanied M.S. Dhoni’s men towards the exit gate. The early part of the South African chase pointed towards a rousing night. Zaheer Khan nailed Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis failed to clear the inner-circle and Man-of-the-Match Yuvraj Singh castled South African captain A.B. de Villiers. At 46 for three, seemingly hurtling towards another loss, South Africa found belated cheer in Faf d ...

It will not be too far removed from the Dubai surface on which Australia and Pakistan last met.

India look to Iron Out Flaws Having scraped past Afghanistan in the opening game, India went for a rigorous practice session at the P Sara Oval ground here on Friday. By Himanshu Shekhar, in Colombo Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina were notable absentees in the optional training session. Both players had health concerns and they decided to remain indoors. While Yuvraj had a sore throat, Raina had an upset stomach after the food he had at the R Premadasa Stadium, the team management confirmed. However, it was also said that nothing was serious and issues related to food and all were being looked into. The P Sara Oval, the home ground of the Tamil Union and Athletics Club came in Manoj Tiwary’s firing line. The hard-hitting batsman broke the glass shield on the third floor of the newly-built media stand with a forceful hit from the net area, much to the amusement of the assembled crowd, largely dominated by the Indian media. Far off on the other net, India captain MS Dhoni chose to get some hits under his be ...

Pakistan's Kamran Akmal (second left) hugs Shoaib Malik after their win in a warm-up match against India ahead of the ICC Twenty20 World Cup in Colombo. (AP Photo) COLOMBO: Kamran Akmal smashed a blistering unbeaten 92 as Pakistan dented arch-rival India's confidence ahead of the ICC World Twenty20 with a thrilling five-wicket win in their last warm-up game on Monday. Scorecard | Match in Pics India posted a competitive 185 for three riding on Virat Kohli's unbeaten 75, but theirlistless death bowling allowed Pakistan to overhaul the target with five balls to spare at the R Premadasa Stadium. At one stage, the Pakistanis were in a spot of bother at 91 for five, but the diminutive Akmal launched a fierce counter-attack and together with experienced Shoaib Malik added 95 runs off 50 just balls to see the side home. For India, birthday boy Ravichandran Ashwin was the most successful bowler, scalping four wickets for 23 runs. Earlier, Kohli celebrated his ICC ODI Player of the Year award with yet another ster ...
Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene has said the country's cricketers may decide against taking part in the inaugural season of the Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL) if the Sri Lankan board doesn't "settle" the players' central contracts. "We will only sign SLPL contracts once the central contracts of Sri Lanka players are settled," Jayawardene said at the launch of the SLPL. "We discussed it about a month ago, before the Pakistan tour. I hope we can sort it out within the next few days." SLC president Upali Dharmadasa, however, said that the issue would be sorted out by July 25. The players and board have been negotiating contracts since March this year. The contract issue follows a year in which SLC ran into financial problems after running up debts of close to $70 million to finance the building of two international stadiums in Hambantota and Pallekele, and to renovate the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, for the 2011 World Cup. As a result the players were not initially paid their salaries for eight mon ...

Even though the likes of Virender Sehwag and MS Dhoni used the long handle at the Premadasa Stadium on Friday, on the eve of India's third ODI against Sri Lanka, the focus was on two youngsters for contrasting reasons.
What's a chase-able score on this wicket for match at the Premadasa Stadium today?
India vs Sri Lanka: 5 classic encounters Ind survive Mad Max scare Singer - Akai Nidahas Trophy, FINAL July 7, 1998 R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo Result: India won by six runs Man of the Match: Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar (128) and Sourav Ganguly (109) raked up a record first-wicket stand of 252 in only 43 overs. India scored a massive 308, but the Lankans were up for it. Aravinda de Silva kept Sri Lanka in the hunt with a swashbuckling 105 off 94 balls. There were useful contributions from Marvan Atapattu and, towards the end, Roshan Mahanama. Could de Silva do a Javed Miandad? Alas, Sri Lanka fell only seven runs short of victory in the final over. Two inopportune run-outs towards the end proved fatal. Medium-pacer Ajit Agarkar, though, kept his poise to return with excellent figures of four for 53. Brief Scores: India 307/6 in 50 overs (S Tendulkar 128, S Ganguly 109; S Jayasuriya 2/42) bt Sri Lanka 301 in 49.3 overs (A de Silva 105; A Agarkar 4/53) by six runs
India last held the number one position briefly in September 2009 but if they achieve a clean sweep against their hosts now, Mahendra Singh Dhoni's side will unseat current table-toppers Australia. The series, which starts in Hambantota Saturday, brings together the finalists of the 2011 World Cup, held in Mumbai last year. India won that match by six wickets to lift the trophy for the first time in 28 years. After years of domination by Australia, the ranking table is now extremely tight after Michael Clarke's team suffered a 0-4 defeat in England recently. Only two rating points separate the top four teams with South Africa and England sandwiched between Australia and fourth placed India. The Sri Lanka versus India series again utilises the three grounds which are a legacy of the last World Cup. The first two ODIs are in Hambantota, followed by two at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, and the final match in Pallekele August 4.
